MCBE would like to thank 3M for the delicious meal and snacks provided at New Teacher Orientation.
School will resume for Marion County students tomorrow, August 9th, and motorists will be sharing the road with school buses once again. Please allow additional time in your daily commute to accommodate more traffic, including buses, on the roadways. Our Transportation Department operates with our children’s safety as its number one priority. Please help them keep our children safe by keeping a watchful eye for school buses and being mindful of the law which pertains to them.
Thank you to everyone who made our 2023-2024 Inservice a success! From our guest speaker, Dr. Danny Steele, to all of our awesome vendors, and our wonderful administrators and teachers - we appreciate you all! We are looking forward to an exciting year in Marion County Schools!
Just a reminder that all students entering 6th grade are required to have an up-to-date immunization record on file. Sixth grade students will need the TDaP booster. Please call your physician, health department, or pharmacy for assistance.

Great news for the coming school year!!! Marion County Schools will participate in the Community Eligibility Program. The CEP program is a PILOT program for the 23-24 school year that allows all enrolled students to eat breakfast and lunch at no cost! CEP is based on the overall economic status of our regional area. NO free or reduced applications will be needed from parents this school year. No action is required by parents for students to eat free. Please note the first complete meal is free, however extra plates or items must be purchased. All visiting children, adults, and employees will be required to pay for meals. www.paypams.com is still available for anyone that wishes to add money to his or her child(ren)'s accounts. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
